Recognizable world-wide as the leader in Green Tire Spraying Equipment, we have engineered several different base models, and have the capabilities to custom design a system to fit your specific needs. Our Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System plays a pivotal role in supplying the best spray coverage in the industry. We have expanded our product line using our expertise with FANUC Robotics and applied them in the tire build, cure, and final finish areas.
Pioneer’s RTS1000i system takes a robotic approach to spraying mold release on the inside of green passenger tires. As the tire enters the cell dimensions are gathered by two sets of light arrays. This information is used to change the spray pattern, optimize the amount of spray, reduce the amount of overspray, resulting in an accurate and consistent spray system. The tire is then picked up by a FANUC R1000 six axis robot and sprayed with Pioneer’s Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System. As an option, the RTS1000io can be upgraded with an LR Mate robot that will also spray the outside of the tire. Check out our RTS2000i for larger MRT or Medium Radial Truck Tires. These systems are covered under US PATENT No’s 7,943,201 / 8,646,404 / 9,192,953 / 9,884,338.
This is Pioneer’s DTS1000i machine. It is dial indexing spray system capable of handling passenger tires. The DTS1000i can be outfitted to utilize Pioneer’s Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System. Utilizing three stations, the tire is conveyed, measured, and chucked in the loading station. The tire is then indexed to the spray station where a spray gun will pop up inside the tire and spray mold release to coat the tire. The tire is then unloaded and conveyed out of the system in the exit zone. With all three zones active at the same time, this machine has a very high throughput. If needed this system can be outfitted with an additional spray gun to coat the outside of the tire as well. The DTS2000i system can handle Medium Radial Truck Tires. These systems are covered under US PATENT No. 9,192,953.
Pioneer’s in house engineering allows custom designing and building systems to meet any needs for larger tire sizes. Pioneer has done linear gantry pick and place or robotic tire handling and spray systems. These systems can interface with existing racking systems, carts, or conveyors.
Pioneer’s WWS1000 uses vision to identify if the incoming finished tire contains a white wall, or white letters. It then uses that same vision process to identify the size of the white area, and sends coordinates to the FANUC six-axis LRMate Robot to spray a protective coating over the white rubber. This system is flexible, fast, and designed to reduce overspray. It utilizes Pioneer’s Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System. The standard version comes with a single lane conveyor, but it can be upgraded to a dual lane system (WWS2-1000). The dual lane system allows for a tire to enter/exit the cell and go through the vision process while the robot is spraying the opposite lane, thus increasing throughput. For Pioneer’s HP1000, they can modify this system to apply high point paint dots on tires using inkjet print head mounted on end of robot arm. This system is covered under US PATENT No’s 7,943,201 / 8,646,404 / 9,192,953.
Pioneer’s model VTS1000io can spray both inside and or outside of tire. The tires are manually loaded and unloaded into the spray booth. Tires are sprayed via our Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System based on tire recipe. The VTS1000ioB systems applies to bias ply tires. They sit on a rotating table and the spray gun comes in from the top to spray the tires. The VTS1000iR system applies to radial tires. The tires hang on a rotating chuck and the spray gun comes in from the bottom. This system is covered under US PATENT No’s 8,646,404 / 9,192,953.
Pioneer’s model HTS100i can spray inside of both bias-ply or radial tires. The tires are manually loaded and unloaded into the spray booth. Tires are sprayed using a simple pressure pot fluid delivery system. Spray gun position and fan pattern along with spray timer are manually adjusted.
Pioneer’s model HTS1000i can spray inside of both bias-ply or radial AG tires. The tires are manually loaded and unloaded into the spray booth. Tires are sprayed using Pioneer’s Patented Precision Fluid Delivery System. Spray gun position is controlled by a linear actuator. The amount of lube dispensed is controlled by a servo motor and the spray fan pattern is controlled, both based on tire recipe.
This is the heart of each one of Pioneer’s spray systems. Utilizing several measuring devices, each incoming tire is measured. This data is used to calculate spray gun positions, the amount of fluid, fan, and atomizing air required for that specific tire size. Taking this information and applying it to the calibrated spray formula, Pioneer can precisely dispense the right amount of fluid for every tire that enters its systems. This reduces overspray and allows them to adjust to each tire on the fly, without requiring batches, recipes, or any higher level communications. While Pioneer prefers you purchase a new spray system, they recognize that sometimes the funds are not in the budget. The patented Precision Fluid Delivery System (PFDS) is able to be purchased separately and retrofitted onto existing equipment. This allows you to experience some of the precision benefits that come with their tire spraying equipment at an affordable cost. So keep Pioneer in mind when you go to upgrade your existing machine! This technology is covered under US Patent No. 9,192,953.
